1) develop through the draft and not pursue rental free agent players
2) make the team bigger and tougher to play against.

Then, he goes out and signs Danny Briere and you expect the fans to overlook it, say "good job" and ignore the fact that this signing is antithetical to those two publically stated goals?

I think that the habs fan base can adopt a long term plan, its not reasonable to think we will contend every year. But the gm can't piss on us and then try to convince us its raining. This ( along with the signing of parros) look like desaration moves, we can't land Vinny so get has been Briefs and then we can't get anyone to play and help our undersized forwards so find some el cheepo goon that we could have gotten ( or someone similar) for a late round pick if we wanted, but we didn't so package guys that would never make the big club simply so he could say something when the press expectedly asked about the lack of grit.
